You will find a very good quality of food, very friendly staff to help you, very unique atmosphere, sounds & decoration to enjoy at this restaurant.

“Average food with very bad service”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

At Planet Africa, the side dishes and soft drinks are refillable. So each time you ask for a refill you feel like you should beg for it. Honestly they have a very bad service

“a very good resturant with a distinguished decoration”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

this is my first time to dine in this resturant, i went with my family to El Mohandessin branch, the interior decoration is very distinguished with its african jungle theme with sterio effects of animal & birds sounds played continuously simulating a jungle together with the walls decorations that simulate the interior of a cave with branches of trees and animals maquettes.
the service was excellent,the menue was very rich, but some items were not available, the quality of food was excellent , yet i found one drawback : as i ordered my steak to be grilled medium well , the steak was served to me undercooked close to raw, the steward was checking that every thing is ok when i informed him about my remark he apologized and took my steak for further grilling & brought it back to me correctly grilled.
the meals of my other family members were all very good in quality & quantity and delicious in taste.
when we came to the deserts we found it not good at all , i do not recomend ordering deserts in this resturant.
i noticed that the steward checked our table several times to be sure that every thing is OK, so did also the manager
The overall experience is very good & the prices were very reasonable and i certainly recomend it to everybody for a different & distinguished dinner or supper.
